The family—man, woman, child—is the human trinity of society and hence is often called the "social unit" or the "cell of the social organism". Since it has priority of nature with regard to larger groups, it has also the priority of right. The family is the first to serve the individual and when it fails, society fails, for history is full of examples of the fall of empires preceded by the decay of family life. Because of its influence in the forming of personal character and the training of citizenship, it is of first social importance.
